A Taste of New Zealand - Gold Pears!
Gotta Try One!
Last week, we taste-tested some delicious Taylor's Gold Pears from New Zealand and placed an order on the spot! These foolproof healthy snacks are always super sweet with a lush mouth feel. Absolutely fabulous!
Taylor’s Gold pears, botanically classified as Pyrus communis, are a European variety that are members of the Rosaceae family along with apples and peaches. An early season variety, Taylor’s Gold pears are a sport or mutation of the comice pear and are most widely grown and found in New Zealand. Taylor’s Gold pears are one of the most popular varieties in New Zealand today, commonly grown in backyard gardens, and are favored for their creamy consistency and sweet flavor.
Taylor's Gold pears are medium to large in size and have a shape very similar to a comice pear, large and round at the base tapering slightly to a smaller curved neck and thick, dark brown stem. The skin is smooth, uniform, and cinnamon-colored with the occasional rose blush and is covered in russeting. The ivory to cream-colored flesh is firm and moist with a delicate aroma and encases a central core filled with a few black-brown seeds. When ripe, Taylor’s Gold pears are creamy, juicy, and tender with a rich, sweet flavor and mild notes of honey.
Available in the mid-spring through summer in New Zealand, which is the fall through early winter in the northern hemisphere.
Contain potassium, antioxidants, calcium, fiber, and vitamin C.
